I know you guys have been waiting for another underwear post and since I've been behaving myself so well these last few months, I figure my Mother's heart could probably take the shock again, so here you go! Actually, the real reason I've taken some "look I'm in my underwear" pictures is to document my progress for a "biggest loser" competition I joined at work! Now I know some of you will say, "What?? Are you crazy, you look fine" and just so you all know, I think I look pretty swell, not bad for an almost 39 year old broad! Yes, seriously, I'm almost 39. I also think I've done a most excellent job at maintaining my weight loss all these years, (yes, I was overweight) but I really felt like I needed something to help me stay motivated and on a healthy track this winter. I don't know about you but this gal always gets a little blue in the Winter, eats more and exercises less. I think this is common for a lot of people in the colder climates, but this year, I really want to avoid the winter blahs and decided to join in the competition with some of my other co-workers.
Some of my other personal goals for the competition include:
My biggest goal for the competition is simply just to tone up more. I've always loved exercising but have never been a big fan of weights. I'm really going to focus more on making sure I get a weight workout in three times a week along with my cardio. I hit up the gym with the Sgt this past Sunday (which was a lot of fun) and he gave me a bunch of weight exercises to get me on my way to a toner me! Lucky me, I have my own personal trainer!
- take a daily vitamin
- stop drinking diet soda and drink more water
- track my daily food intake
- exercise 4-5 times a week
- Break outta the 120's....I feel good about the number 115!
I also suffer with hypothyroidism and take synthroid daily to help manage my levels. I've been working really hard to keep after my thyroid. What a pain in the ass that little thyroid is and he can wreck havoc on your metabolism! Screw you thyroid, I'm losing another 10 lbs whether you like it or not!
Anyone else out there on a healthier you in the new year quest?? After all, bathing suit season and VLV is right around the corner....anyone care to join me in feeling the burn??
Cheers to a healthier me and a healthier you too!
